Useful information

To cut down your use of single use plastic tubs and trays, you could try visiting a refill or bulk store in your area. The Cornish Life has an excellent article about these with links to local stores here: Refill an zero waste shops in Cornwall

Many local butchers and fish mongers will often let you bring your own containers too.
